We have located three old mint sites in Budapest.  The two oldest ones are in Buda near the famous Fishermans Bastion, and neither of the old buildings exist today.  The later mint was built in the suburbs in the early 20th century, and has recently been decommissioned as modern coin production has recently been transferred to a new location.

The oldest mint is near the Austrian Gate (upper location outlined in yellow), and a subsequent location
was near the corner of Hess Andras ter and Fortuna Koz Streets (below, outlined in yellow), both
in the old walled portion of Buda, near the Fishermans Bastion.
